This was the group's big play on a number of levels. Partly a response to the controversy generated over band member Professor Griff's comments about Jews, and also building on the popularity of "Fight the Power" which had been recorded the year before for Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing, the group constructed possibly the most conceptual album the hip-hop world has ever witnessed. There is a little bit too much filler (a failing of all concept albums, I suppose) but overall, Fear of a Black Planet is easily one of the most engaging, entertaining, and educational records ever made, in any genre, bar none.
